GERRY – A Village of Cassadaga man is facing several charges after New York State Troopers alleged they found methamphetamine during a traffic stop Sunday.
Michael Austin, 39, is charged with two counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of second-degree criminally using drug paraphernalia and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation.
Troopers said Austin was pulled over on Route 60 in Gerry for a traffic violation.
A check of Austin’s driving record revealed that his license was suspended, and Austin was subsequently placed under arrest.
Police said a search of Austin and his vehicle allegedly revealed bags containing nine grams of methamphetamine, a glass pipe containing methamphetamine residue, a digital scale, baggies, and a cut off straw and a spoon both containing methamphetamine residue.
Troopers said Austin was processed at the State Police Barracks in Jamestown and transported to the Chautauqua County Jail, pending arraignment.
